The glass made by Lancaster during the Depression Era was often of fine quality, as seen in this Jubilee Topaz Yellow two handled Sandwich Plate. The Jubilee cut #1200 is a twelve-petal cornflower with an open center. A single gently curved stem with bilateral leaves accents the engraved flower.
This plate has three of the flowers winding around the rim. The gently scalloped plate rim has six small equidistant points alternating with the curves. The applied open handles are each made up of two scrolls of glass that are joined in the center with a three lobed medallion.
The topaz color is a clear lemon yellow, deeper at the 5-inch ground and polished foot.
Sometimes called a cake plate, this sandwich tray measures 11-inches in diameter and 13-inches across the handles.
Made by Lancaster in the early 1930s, there is no mark.
There is a tiny nick on the ground and polished foot that does not impact stability. Other than expected surface scratches from normal use, there is no other damage to this lovely plate.
